About me

I’m a professional photographer based in Glasgow, specialising in weddings, events and studio work. Since 2006 I’ve had over 200 commissions, ranging from large and spectacular to small and intimate. My studio work focusses on people – from family portraits and newborns to headshots and professional athletes.

I have a keen eye for detail and composition – the end result is top priority. For my clients, I recognise the benefits of a seamless and enjoyable experience. Any photo shoot can be nerve-racking and stressful, so my friendly, social approach always helps put everyone at ease. There’s no substitute for natural smiles and genuine emotion. Authentically capturing those special moments can be the difference between a good shot and a great shot.

I’m always investing in the latest kit and love to experiment with new, inventive production techniques. This approach combined with my experience has proven really successful. I’m incredibly proud to have received consistently excellent reviews and feedback from my clients – it makes the job far more rewarding.

Something different…

Not every man can relate to the stress of organising a wedding. That’s where I’m different… In 2011 I featured on BBC Three’s BAFTA nominated ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’. I had the sole responsibility of planning and organising our wedding – finding venues, picking chair covers, centrepieces, who sits where – even choosing the dress! In 3 short weeks I managed something that most couples spend years on! The day was unforgettable, my wife forgave me for having to jump out a plane and to top it all off, our episode was voted the show’s best ever!

I’ve experienced all the stresses and pressures of a big day, so can talk you through pretty much any crisis and offer advice on anything from bridesmaids dresses to cakes!
